In the situation with the DeLacey family, the monster observes their behavior patterns and help them out in his own way of helping. When he revealed his true appearance to the family, the family judged him right away and tried to kill him because of appearance. Another tragic event that happens in the story is when Victor dies as the monster watch him dying (Morrison). In Walton last letter to his sister, the letters recount the monster final words to Victor that said, “I, the miserable and the abandoned, am an abortion, to be spurned at, and kicked, and trampled on.” (Shelly) This quote means that the monster knew no matter what he is mistreated and abused by people all of the time. The monster grew up horribly in the world and always judged.
This quote conveys the theme because once you let something take over, you’ll never, realize all the damage that you have done to yourself or others around you. During his life, he wasted it in the pursuit of the destruction of the creature and in turn, the creature destroyed everything Victor loved, including Elizabeth. Both their life was wasted away by the destruction of hatred and the damage they wanted to do to one another, they could have forgave and moved on, but didn't make that choice until it was the
The creature couldn’t help but envy the people with family and friend, for whom he had no one that he, could even call remotely a friend. He then learns about Victor through Victor’s journal when he figures about his abandonment and grows furious and decides to take revenge on unfortunate Victor Frankenstein. He kills his brother, his best friend and later talks to Victor about his lonely life. He demands a companion from Victor and Victor creates a companion for him, though victor later destroys it. Filled with hatred Frankenstein kills Victor’s wife on his wedding day.
“The child still struggled and loaded me with epithets which carried despair to my heart; I grasped his throat to silence him, and in a moment he lay dead at my feet (“Frankenstein” Mary Shelley) This quote is saying that the Creature is being Excessively Brutal towards William when he murders him. Which is also Barbarous! Another Example is Victor Frankenstein is being Barbarous! when he doesn’t bail out Justine from fake Accusations. Victor is being Savagely Cruel towards Justine when he is silent and Doesn’t speak up.
An eye for an eye or the law of retaliation is the principle most people live their lives by. As Gandhi once stated, “an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind” (Gandhi). For the characters in Frankenstein, this concept is apparent as the main character, Victor, creates a monster and instantly abandons him which sets off the chain of events revolving around revenge. Throughout the novel, the creature and Victor engage in a recurring cycle of vengeance, but these acts of revenge are bittersweet as in the end it destroys both of them. In the novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley reveals how revenge consumes and destroys those who surrender to it.
The second process of creation is demanding: “It was indeed a filthy process in which I was engaged. […] But now I went to it in cold blood, and my heart often sickened at the work of my hands.” (Shelley 159). Victor worries about the female creature: “she might become ten thousand times more malignant than her mate, and delight, for its own sake, in murder and wretchedness. […] They might even hate each other…” (Shelley 160). When Victor looks up from his work and sees the monster, who travelled after him, he tears “to pieces the thing on which [he] was engaged” and “the wretch saw [him] destroy the creature on whose future existence he depended for happiness, and, with a howl of devilish despair and revenge, withdrew.” (Shelley
But there is a conflict and this is that there is no one of his kind in the world; and because of this he becomes very sad. The creature confronts Victor and asks him to make another creature similar to him but female, and Victor begins to make another creature but stops in the middle of his project. The creature finds this out and begins to terrorize Victor, the creature gets Victor's attention by killing a child and then killing Victor's best friend. When the creature killed Victor's best friend Victor had known what had to be done. The last thing that made the creature have full control over Victor was that he killed his newly wed wife.
Therefore the first conflict arises, man versus nature- the creature is in conflict with the unknown aspects of the world and he is left to travel the world alone. Due to this inability to adapt to the prejudice, the creature reacts with revenge and kills people both close to Victor Frankenstein and those who are strangers to him. The first main killing of the creature is William Frankenstein, Victor’s youngest brother. As a result, another conflict arises, man versus man- the creature is in conflict with his creator. This back and forth revenge story between Victor and his creation, the last conflict arises, man versus self- Victor is in direct conflict with himself because he is drowning in the guilt and fear over the result of his
Victor regrets his action so turns the creature lose to the world and closes himself in his abysm of thoughts. The creature toughly discovers the world on his own and declares war on humanity. Frankenstein’s act as God conducts his life and his creation’s into a series of terrific events. As the novel progresses, Victor and his monster vie for the role or protagonist. At simple site, readers think the monster and Victor are two completely different people, but in fact they share the same desires.
The monster’s creator, Frankenstein, first lays eyes on the monster and, being filled with “breathless horror and disgust”, immediately shuns his own creation (Shelley 59). Frankenstein makes the assumption that the monster is evil based solely off his appearance. His feelings of terror far overpower any desire to investigate the condition of the being he tirelessly toiled over. Alone and confused, the monster wanders into a hut where he encounters a man who “shriek[s] loudly” and flees, which “somewhat surprise[s]” the monster (Shelley 111). This surprise conveys the monster’s naive and innocent nature, contrary to his assumed evil and monstrous characteristics.
